The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust

The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust is a Quaker trust that makes grants of over £10m each year to support people tackling the root causes of conflict and injustice. We are looking to recruit additional trustees to our Board in 2020.

These exciting and challenging roles support people who are making a  positive difference; whether they are promoting peace in Northern Ireland, advocating for some of the most vulnerable people in our society or taking steps towards an environmentally sustainable future. 

As an all-Quaker trustee board we look after a responsibly invested endowment. Every year we make about 100 grants for all kinds of transformative charitable work across our five programme areas of Peace and Security, Rights and Justice, Power and Accountability, Sustainable Future and Northern Ireland.

Prospective trustees must be actively involved with Quakers. We welcome applications from Friends of all ages and backgrounds to this very rewarding voluntary role. In particular, we want to make the trustee board more diverse and inclusive in terms of ethnicity, age and social background.  

Trustees must be able to attend at least eight meetings per year and to spend regular time on Trust business.  We cover expenses including travel and childcare to ensure financial constraints are not an obstacle.
